jws-hep.21237.fig2.tif391K Suppl. Fig. 2: Characterization of HSC/MFB cultures.HSC purified from normal rat liver were cultured in DMEM with 10% FCS. Two days (A, C, E) or 8 days (B, D, F) after plating, cells were examined under phase contrast microscopy (A, B). At day 2, HSC exhibit a typical stellate morphology (A) with the presence of autofluorescent vitamin A droplets (right inset). Desmin (C) and glial fibrillary acidic protein (E) are detected by immunofluorescence. At day 8, HSC are transformed into HSC/MFB; they have lost their vitamin A droplets (B) and express desmin (D) and a-SMA (F). Original magnification: 320X (A) and 100X (B, C, D, E, F).
